Unhappy SRT in 2021

Ralph Gilles, President/CEO of Dodge was asked, "What will the SRT8 look like in the future?" Here is his answer:

"There will still be a handful of V-8s out there, but we're going to invest in fours and sixes. With the SRT, we've had turbo fours in the past. We're looking at active dampening, which we actually have today in the SRT8 Charger. So it's taking all of these technologies that people associate with relatively exotic cars and bring it down to the Dodge customer, making it much more affordable...I see the future as being all about duality, having your cake and eating it, too...a 400-hp engine that gets 40 mpg."

It looks like our Hemis are on "borrowed time."

Hmm, I like a turbo 4 in the right application, but they are not a substitute for the distinctive rumble of a 'murican V8. Here's hoping he's appeasing the eco-conscious media while secretly cackling over new firebreathing Hemi monsters in a secret lab underground.
